Well, I have been to 8 Chicago Marathons to cheer Brian on, and I have never seen anything like this! Marathon runners stopped and waiting at a red light to cross Michigan Avenue to walk back because the race has been cancelled. We took this picture as we walked back to our car. Brian did finish the race before they ended it, and he is fine. I guess they had over 300 people go to the hospital for heat stroke before they called the race. Let's hope it isn't 90 degrees next year!!!
Congrats to all that ran, and to all those who cheered them on, too!
